The Channel Islands can be a magical place. Most of the chain is less than 20 miles southwest of the Central and Southern California coastline but it feels like a world apart. A big group of friends decided to head out for for some camping at Santa Cruz Island this past weekend and we scored. The weather was as good as it gets, 78 and sunny. We trail ran, free dived, kayaked, hiked, and just enjoyed the solitute, scenery, and the company. Below is a small set from the trip featuring the lookout over the harbor towards Anacapa Island, the notoriously curious and mischievous Island Fox, and the old ranch windmill. I'll be posting more images and a short video of the adventure in the coming weeks...come back for more!
